Re: E-mail to Text (SMS)

Rogers email to SMS (xxxxxxxxxx@pcs.rogers.com) gateway is not always reliable.  A few weeks ago I spent more than 45 minutes on the phone with technical services because email coming from certain smtp provider were not getting through the gateway.  At the end, I was told that they had made a server change the previous weekend (something related to IP V6) and they were thinking it came from that.  Something like the changes had not yet completely propagated.  I had reservation, but they would not escalate the ticket saying that there was nobody they could transfer me too. Anyway the service started working a 3-4 days later. It seems to be working good since.  They confirm that @sms.rogers.com has been discontinued for a while.  A few weeks earlier there was also an outage for messages coming from certain smtp provider.

Re: E-mail to Text (SMS)

I am getting the message on my phone using ##########@pcs.rogers.com but when I reply with Read nothing happens... any ideas of what I need to do to be able to respond to 'reply with 'Read' to read your message'

typing 《read》en pressing send work for me. It takes 1 or 2 seconds and a new sms comes in with the message content.

Re: E-mail to Text (SMS)

that is the issue, typing read does nothing, but it used to when I had an iphone, but now I am using a galaxy S7, so not sure if it is a phone issue or a Rogers issue.

I just tried it on a Iphone 8+ and it worked.  I also sent one at the same time to my galaxy S9 and I'm still waiting . . .  It's been more than 5 minutes.

Thanks for testing, sounds like it could be a Galaxy issue....hmmm I wonder if there is a fix for this some where.

Re: E-mail to Text (SMS)

So I replied Yes as it seems to be coming from Rogers.  If this cost me money per month, then I would like it removed.  And if it does, Rogers should be advising its user of this in the message.

 

so what is it?  A cost item or not?

Hello @Cgnichols!

 

Welcome to our Community!

 

First, let me put your mind at ease right away... this is a free service! You can receive emails if people send an email to your phone number @pcs.rogers.com. If, however, you wish to send email from this address, there is a $5 monthly fee.

 

Just wanted to clear that up! If you have any other questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to let us know!

 

Regards,

RogersCorey
